  • Departing Dublin

    Posted by Intern on November 3, 2013.

    Dublin, Ireland, has now officially joined the list of cities around the world that I have absolutely loved. Granted, this list includes every city that I have been to, but nonetheless, these past 30 hours or so in the Irish big city has shown me that all cities aren't quite the same, but can … More »

  • Imagination Becomes a Reality

    Posted by Intern on October 23, 2013.

    For many years now, I have wanted to come to the United Kingdom and Ireland, the British Isles. I never really knew why nor did I have a real reason why, but there was something about this region that drew my attention unlike any other place in the world. It has class, elegance, grandeur, … More »

  • A new adventure

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 16, 2013.

    A few months ago, I never thought I would leave Virginia. I was at the Women’s basketball NCAA Final Four for a conference and a head coach asked me “Could you work in California?” I replied immediately “No,” but she told me about the limits I would set myself to if I didn’t venture out. … More »

  • St. Patrick’s Day 2011

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 23, 2011.

    Our St. Patrick's extravaganza kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Porterhouse, Dublin's best microbrewery. In this spot, you won't find any Harp, Guinness or Smithwicks. In stead you'll find their own brews that bring home award after award from the brewer's championship competition. … More »

  • Leading to St. Paddy’s

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 22, 2011.

    A week ago I was running around like a crazy man making sure everything was in place for the upcoming St. Patrick's day extravaganza. My to do list was 2 pages long, and had things like "confirm bus arrangements," "rent megaphone," "hang flag out front of the hostel," "get picnic supplies for … More »

Happy Backpackers

Bogi is a great guide. She was everything you could want in a guide plus more. She was fun, cool, and the best part- knowledgeable. She really made the trip great. We got to the hostel late and she was able to rearrange our schedule so everyone could go caving. After caving we were picked up by Bogi (thank goodness because figuring out Hungarian public transportation is really hard if you don't speak Hungarian). WSA made sure to include super cool things- caving, thermal baths, bus tickets, escape games and the hostel. I would definitely do this trip again. Bogi was fun and flexible, we didn't have to stick to a tight schedule and we were able to do things that we wanted to do like the Liberty Statue. She is great, WSA is lucky to have her.
